Elliot Cloud joins the eCitySevilla project led by the Andalusian Regional Government, Seville City Council, PCT Cartuja and Endesa.

In 2011 the European Commission defined the roadmap for moving towards a low-carbon and competitive economy by 2050, which gave indications of how the European Union should reduce its emissions by 80% below 1990 levels through domestic reductions.

In 2018, through a European Commission report on the 'Strategic Vision for the European Union 2050: A Clean Planet for All', aimed at ensuring a prosperous, competitive and climate-neutral economy; and with the Commission's March 2020 proposal for the European Climate Act, the framework for achieving EU climate neutrality by 2050 was established.

eCity Seville, a project aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions

The eCitySevilla project responds to the commitments made by the Spanish government to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, both within the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, its Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement, and within the framework of the European Union.

With our adhesion to the eCity Seville project, we are adding a new milestone linked to the collaboration with the city's business network and the positioning of the brand in Andalusia.

After several months of work, Elliot Cloud has joined the portfolio of suppliers interested in contributing their solutions for the development and implementation of one of the most important Seville flag projects, The aim of the project is to create an innovative project on Isla de la Cartuja in terms of effective public-private collaboration in the interests of sustainability and efficiency, based on five pillars: energysustainable mobility, building, digitalisation and participation and communication.

Objectives applied to smart cities

Elliot Cloud has positioned itself as an open solution for data processing, applied to the Smart Citiesand focused on three fundamental axes: energy, mobility and digitisation of processes.

Now is the time to develop the roadmap and draw up proposals that fit in with the work themes to create alliances with other companies and achieve, in the space occupied by the Isla de la Cartuja, to anticipate the targets set for 2030 for the reduction of greenhouse gases, so that by 2025, according to the agreement of the European Council of December 2020, this will be achieved:

  • At least reduce a 55% greenhouse gas emissions compared to 1990.
  • At least, a renewable energy 32% in energy consumption.
  • At least, 32.5% improvement energy efficiency.

Once these lines of work have been developed, in 2025, the PCT Cartuja will enjoy a 100% renewable energy supply, will have efficient buildings, charging points will be deployed to promote sustainable electric mobility and, all of this, will operate with a connected and autonomous system, plugged into a fully digitised smart grid, which will also provide an open data platform for the intelligent management of the park.

Elliot Cloud highlights at the 4th RECI Technical Committee the need to apply technology to drive more efficient and sustainable cities

The CEO of Elliot Cloud, Óscar Ruiz Chicote, and the director of Innovation and Public Administration, José Antonio Morales, have attended this Friday the IV Technical Committee of the Spanish Network of Smart Cities (RECI) that has been held in the city of Rota (Cádiz).

The event, which was sponsored by Elliot Cloud, brought together public and private entities to promote economic development, sustainability and improved city management using digital and technological resources.

Throughout the day, Elliot Cloud took part in two round table discussions linked to the development and promotion of the smart cities as a model for a sustainable city. Firstly, Oscar Ruíz ChicoteElliot Cloud CEO, took part in the round table to address the subject of "The use of technology in Tourism Sustainability Plans in Destinations", in which the fundamental role of technology in the application of the funds that the Spanish Government has allocated to move towards the transformation of tourist destinations towards a model based on environmental, socio-economic and territorial sustainability was debated.


In addition, Elliot Cloud will also be represented at one of the panel discussions in the afternoon, which will be attended by José Antonio MoralesThe European Funds and R&D&I, a way to implement improvements in public services?

The meeting was an opportunity to showcase how Elliot Cloud applies the technology to infrastructure management, and cities by means of the monitoring and control of the different facilities in buildings or cities.

Elliot Experiences: Digital Tourist 2022 by José Morales

Hello, I am José Morales SánchezDirector of the Innovation and Public Sector area. I am an expert in the R&D&I support ecosystem with more than 10 years of experience working as an innovation manager, carrying out the preparation and implementation of projects at regional, national and European level related to energy efficiency, renewable energies and energy efficiency. renewable energieswaste management and the smart cities.

I currently act as a senior consultant providing answers to public sector requests related to these matters. On this occasion I am here to present my experience at the Digital Tourist 2022 event and the aspects I found most interesting.

What is Digital Tourist 2022?

It is the meeting place for those responsible for Smart Tourism Destinations (ITD): central, regional, provincial and municipal administrations, and the digital tourism offer represented by leading technology companies. It is a social event that gives us back the networkingto facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience.

It is an event that facilitates the exchange of knowledge and experiences, at a time when tourism must regain the strategic, economic and social role it enjoyed before the pandemic.

Digital Technologies were the main themes of this 2022 edition given the implementation of Component 14 of the PRTR and how technology is the key for tourism to gain in competitiveness.

Why it is interesting to attend these events

Face-to-face events, which are making a comeback after the pandemic hiatus, offer the opportunity to network and get to know the ecosystem beyond the countless telematic meetings via a screen.

The company's presence at these events is an opportunity for first-hand dialogue with multiple agents in the tourism sector, where many companies and public administrations (councils, municipalities and associations of municipalities) met, where we were able to listen to their problems and propose our solutions and services that respond to their needs.

In addition to the specific interest in the content of the round tables that took place, the opportunities to networking that arise at face-to-face events are very high, as they allow for a deeper understanding of opportunities and other aspects beyond those of the event itself.

Coffee breaks, travelling time to hotels or sharing a table and tablecloth, allow you to get to know people and their companies in a more relaxed state, which allows you to do a deeper business development that achieves a better positioning of the company at all levels.

Personal experience at the Digital Tourist

Tourism is one of the driving sectors of our country, and as such, the Network of Smart Tourist Destinations is a particularly interesting opportunity to generate business opportunities associated with the technological needs of these municipalities, which already have digitalisation plans and are aware of the use of technology as a tool to make them more attractive to visitors.

From my point of view, an event of this kind, which brings together actors who are already looking for digitisation solutions, is an opportunity to market to entities that are already receptive to our message, bringing together our digitisation, interoperability and transparency services with the needs of municipalities.

The overall experience was very positive. Our role as sponsors of the event allowed us to participate in the round table as speakers on such a hot topic as the management of Recovery Funds, contributing our experience from the business side and the channelling of these funds. This presentation, together with the relationships previously established with several of the actors present, as a result of our daily activity, gave us a very notorious visibility that increased the activities of networking and our relevance in the ecosystem of technology providers.

Highlights of the event

The opportunity to participate in one of the most relevant round tables due to its subject matter and the quality of the panelists, Victor Badorrey (Director of Institutional Relations of Segittur), Inmaculada de Benito (Director of the Tourism Council of the CEOE), Daniel Vega (Head of Smart Cities and Innovation at the FEMP).

The presence of leading players in the world of digitisation of the tourism sector, sharing with them the experiences of the sector and expressing the needs to increase its competitiveness and achieve an improved visitor experience.

The possibility of building quality relationships in a professional and specialised environment, while enjoying a relaxed atmosphere at the events outside the actual discussion tables.
